Got these in-ear bluetooth headphones delivered yesterday Bluedio S3 - £10.59 delivered

So far so good, surprisingly good quality (was expecting really shitty) - does what it says on the tin.
How they holding up?

Still using them - lasts 3hrs. Decent beaters for gym.

I don't find the volume/on cyclinder thing annoying at all but others could find it to be that way.

I'm on my 2nd pair after trying all sorts of high end alternatives. Cheers for the heads up

Need some cheapo round the ear type headphones for running. £20-30ish max. Any recommendations?

Do they properly clip around the ear? Those look more like they're in-ear. Most headphones fall out of my ear, so need something that will hang on.

they're brilliant, they fit using the inner bit of your ear and have never fallen out. So much more comfortable than over the ear. FYI i cant wear in the ear shitty ones.

Sennheiser OCX 685i

Got these, very pleased with them. Only downside is that the little remote is kinda hard to operate with gloves on.

Went running with these last night - had no issues whatsoever. Sound quality is decent as well.

Considering getting another pair

Them Bluedio numbers are sold out and can't find any others on eBay. Anywhere else to get'em?

Edit: Found some shipped from Asia, but will take 2-4 weeks. Any UK sources?

They're not direct from Bluedio, they're direct from "diebelleu" in Shenzhen.

Apologies, I was looking at the blue ones which are sold by diebelleu, whereas the red ones are sold by Bluedio.

It seems a bit weird that each colour is sourced from a different company but all are "fulfilled by Amazon".

Even if you use the gel 'clip' that fits into your inner ear bit? Jawdropping!

To be fair it's only the right side that falls out, which is the side that has the big control buttons thing, so I think more than anything that's slightly weighting it on my right and making it fall out.

But yeah, tried all 3 sizes of the little gel clip and won't stay in when I run. Constantly coming loose or falling out, so annoying.

Edit: Gonna grab them wired Sennheisers instead. Knew These in-ears wouldn't work for me.
